HMMMM..we could say the same about WC/Collingwood. That would make Collingwood vastly inferior as we have dealt with you for the last quite a few games. I think a tad arrogant to talk in those comparisons as we get to the pointy end of the stick as, on a given day, one top tiered team can beat another if they are a little off.
Fully agree, which is why I said it would be like me expecting a West Coast supporter to be intimidated by a Collingwood supporter talking a big game.

I wouldn't be delusional enough to do it.

My whole point is that Richmond are no longer in the top tier.

Agree at this point in time Fadge but what i am trying to point out is, lets see who is there come the first final. I would not be presumptuous enough to say i am not worried about dealing with Collingwood this Friday, as i and most supporters would be. Lets see if the Tiges are there when it counts and if they aren't...................?

One team was on the way up, the other is on the way down.

Fair difference there.
I’m really glad you said that.
Ladder position has nothing to do with it.

Assuming we get our mojo back before we meet, you are simply a vastly inferior side. As we have proven the last two times we have met, where the scoreline has actually flattered the Tigers.
Is it Mojo mate? I’m not sure.
I do think Tigers will play finals I also think the season is all about winning the Grand final.
I really don’t see alot of difference between Richmond and Collingwood last year.
West Coast won it...does it really matter it your the first of the losers or the second of the losers?

I think it’d feel a little embarrassing if a vastly inferior side knocked you out of the top four.
Lets see what happens

Come on pal, you're starting to sound like a Carlton supporter.

You're better than that.

Nope
Flags are the measuring stick everything else is Drivel
Another fun fact...teams placed 1st and 2nd at Rnd 10 (like you and Geel) have only played off in the Granny twice in 60 yrs.
Twice in 60 yrs might have a familiar ring to it for you mate.

Here is how the year plays out...

At the moment Geelong and West Coast are the best two in it.

Pies and GWS the only teams that can trouble either of them. If neither of these two teams get their mojo back, the winner comes from the current top 2 teams.

Every one of the other 14 teams just making up the numbers. They are not consistent enough or good enough to win 3 or 4 big games in September against the best teams in the competition.

We suck lol. Richmond are much better than us. We should consider ourselves lucky we got them on a bad night in the PF. Will be a West Coast Richmond Grand Final and I think the Tigers will win it unfortunately

Geez, you talk like u have a crystal ball. I actually believe pies are cooked not playing well enough and not scoring enough to trouble the real contenders and will be out of the top 4 in the coming weeks. See what I'm doing here :D

GWS we will account for them on Sunday, never beaten us at the G and I expect that to continue. Other teams are not consistent enough u say, well on Richmond guess we have had a valid reason with 7 of our top 10 out for many games from last years B&F. Now, most of our players have returned and we are in 6th spot, still have Jack coming back this Sunday and Nankervis next week. If you wanna judge us on the last 7 games, buckle up for the ride the tigers are coming.

Your right about W/C and Geel playing better than everyone else currently but the rest of it is you spouting silly things again and talking in absolutes.
There’s still another 24 points up for grabs and if the last three years are anything to go by anything can happen.

Yes, I saw what you did there. You stole my crystal ball but it obviously broke in transit.

With nearly a full list to choose from and very few injuries I can’t see them losing the Premiership.
In all seriousness, if they can have their best side remain fit and find form, they could ride momentum into another flag from the bottom half of the eight.

The main thing I take from this is that teams usually finish the season very near the position they were after round 15...

Looking at the run home now and I can't see Richmond playing finals.

Geelong, Pies, GWS, Eagles, are locks to play finals. Would take an extreme event to see these teams fall out.

Adelaide and Brisbane look like 80-90% chances of playing finals, leaving Port, Freo, Bombers (not a chance imo) and Richmond to fight it out.

Port just beat Geelong, and Freo are playing terrific footy (although a lost to Melbourne hurts)

Richmond will need to get all their players back sometime soon and then essentially almost win every game to just make the 8. An event almost unthinkable at the beginning of the year.

Is 2019 almost curtains for the Tigers?
So you're saying we need to be 16-6 just to play finals? Really?
